Usually I don't work with music. However, due to various background noises the other day I switched my Pandora baroque music track on - and had to smile spontaneously. Not having listened to baroque music in in quite a while I had forgotten how healing those frequencies are.
Brooke Nelson wrote in Reader's Digest that classical music lowers blood pressure, opens you up emotionally and fosters social relations, can help you fall asleep, decreases pain, boosts intelligence and improves memory, relieves anxiety, and increases productivity. Wow! What's not to smile about with a long benefits list like that.
Brain World Magazine explains that baroque music's characteristic 60-beats-per-minute pattern is the magic ingredients because it activates both sides of the brain equally. No wonder they play this soothing music in the Port Authority bus terminal in NYC. It calms you instantly.
